I feel kind of dizzy and basically like I've been drinking, but I'm completely sober. At first I thought it was because I missed a dose of buspirone, but I've taken the dose now and still feel the same. And besides, it takes more than a few hours for medication to leave your system.
Any ideas of what this could be/ how to feel "sober" again?
Tiredness can often cause similar effects.
Light headed due to lack of food/standing up too quickly?
Could be anything - lack of sleep, low blood sugar (see if it improves with eating), low blood pressure, dehydration, an ear infection... I feel like this before I get a migraine too sometimes!
Buspirone can also cause vertigo methinks which could explain this feeling. If it gets worse or you're concerned then you should go and see your GP.
the aura before a seizure?
Had any grapefruit juice? It leads to dramatically increased plasma levels of buspirone.
Or it could possibly be a withdrawal reaction because of your delayed dose.
Or it might be a totally separate health problem.
I'd suggest if your feeling of drunkness gets any worse, or if it's not getting better after a couple of hours from now, or if you develop a headache, you should GO STRAIGHT TO A&E to be on the safe side.
